The Coast Starlight is the Most Beautiful Train Ride in America

There is a train out there called “one of America’s most beautiful train rides” and its name is Amtrak’s Coast Starlight.

The train starts in Seattle and ends in Los Angelos. The trip takes you through Washington, Oregon, and California and its most scenic and majestic views. It includes some of the best mountains, forests, valleys, the West Coast has to offer. Passengers can check out these sights because the train cars are in floor to ceiling windows. Tickets for this West Coast train ride galore start at just $97.

Should you feel inclined to spend the big bucks, there is a $325 “Superliner Roomette” option. The deal comes with beds for overnight snoozing and your own private sightseeing window.

The travel time is over 35 hours and takes you through 30 destinations, including Portland, Sacramento, the San Fransisco bay area and many more.

Customer testimonials say the ride lives up to the hype. One person said, “My jaw dropped as the landscape outside changed from green valleys to rolling mountains and hills, to lush forests, cows on fields and snow-covered trees, to little neighborhoods and beautiful shorelines. It truly was a sight to behold.”
